What is hypnosis?

The premise of hypnosis is that within every person there exists a profound possibility, an untapped source of potential to create meaningful and lasting change in a person’s life.

For most people, access to this inner resource is limited because all of their energy and awareness stays on the surface of the mind, the part of the mind that is constantly evaluating, criticizing, and generally limiting the full range of motion available to a person. What is often not understood is that the nature of this mind is deeply informed and shaped by the much larger and influential subconscious mind. Deeply ingrained habits and ways of perceiving the world lie beneath the surface of our ordinary waking mind. Unexplored, these habits of perception continually exert their influence in our lives, keeping us chained to beliefs, attitudes, and feelings that often limit our full potential as human beings. The good news is that the subconscious mind is highly receptive to the power of suggestion. Tapping into this power of the subconscious mind to re-frame our experience is what hypnosis is all about. Whatever the need may be, changing self-defeating belief systems, dropping bad habits, or managing pain, hypnosis allows people to access their own internal power and apply it to any area of life in need of change.

Hypnosis works by inducing in the individual a deeply relaxed state of being which allows the conscious mind to be distracted and wander. With the conscious mind no longer dominant, the subconscious mind comes to the forefront, allowing the therapist to engage the power of suggestion to create change at a subconscious level. As the suggestions take root at this level our beliefs, feelings, and attitudes are in turn transformed, resulting in new ways of feeling and behaving in our live.
